In 2009, Kentucky became the first state to adopt the Common Core State Standards in English/language arts and mathematics. These new standards, known as the Kentucky Core Academic Standards are more rigorous and aligned with college coursework and the 21st century skills required in the workplace.
Two years later, Kentucky became THE leader of our nation as the first state to test students on the new, more rigorous standards and base school and district performance on whether students are on target to graduate from high school ready for college and/or career.
